Realistic 2

Arrow Image Help getting through level 2 of realistic missions...

First thing to do is to find the directory the backup exists in. This is pretty obvious!

Next we need to read this part again:

"the backup file is named in this order year, month, day, hour, .sql with no minutes and he also heard that the backup was made on September of 2004. It looks like backup_2004-09-01_1000.sql"

This hints that the backup file name will range from"backup_2004-09-01_1000.sql" to "backup_2004-09-30_2300.sql"

So how do we find the file? Well we could try every URL but that would take forever. Instead we need to write a script that will automatically try each URL. I am good at PHP so if you are take a look at loops and the fopen() function.

Here is a snippet of my code:

$fp = @fopen($url, "r");
if ($fp) {
echo $url;

When you find the sql file, it will give you the username and password which is an md5 hash. Dont waste your time brute forcing it, its a dictionary word so try one of those websites that have password dictionaries on them.

Please do not PM me asking for the file, it defeats the idea of a challange!

Good luck :-)

maybe.. i did it differently though.. but this sounds like it works :-p, dont know too much about coding php (javascript is reaaaaallllllly easy lol)

You can do it in any other language, even in javascript as masterior claims. But yes, this mission seems to require the use of brute force unless someone has another idea?

ow.............. i have used XmlHttpRequest. It uses ActiveX. i have a variable dan, for example, witch is the response. So, basically i read the "state" of the server. [404 or 200] . httpRequest uses both java and html so i you sholud do a for in that big statement........ good luck all of you [and me, too because i didn't do it] xdanx B)SmileWinkAngry

ok right get in line for insults... how do you use scripts ? Sad
olichipon June 03 2012 - 18:17:58
@IbaiJoe if you mean php scripts, just download XAMPP and search google for more infos
johnnyjhonsonon August 19 2014 - 20:03:06
@IbaiJoe If you want to use Javascript and you use chrome, you can just use the chrome console: ctrl-shift-i => console.

I'm using python for this, seems easy enough but it's going to take a while to actually find the correct URL lol.
